Question about Honda GL 1100 Gold Wing Motorcycles
Center stand the bike, place a jack under the motor but do not lift yet,unbolt calipers and hang with wires, loosen the four nuts and washers on the bottom of fork on nut looking end of axle(nut should turn but may not be tight), loosen nut on axle, now take off all nuts washers,and pull off two caps. Now slowly jack up motor to rock bike back on center stand, just enough to roll wheel out the front. When putting caps back on make sure arrows on the caps are pointed forward. Also use feeler gauge in tool kit (or eyeball it) to make sure discs are centered in caliper slots and not rubbing against calipers(before tightening eight nuts on fork bottom caps. Also make sure speedo gear is positioned correctly(not binding) and wheel spins freely before dropping wheel. It takes some fiddling around to put this front wheel back on. Minor adjustments are made by spinning the axle nut to adjust fork spacing.
